What's New in the ASA
April, 2007

Goodsearch for ASA

A few people have alerted the ASA of a new Internet search engine that will donate one cent to the organization of your choice for each web search that you do. Similar to Google, the ASA has signed up with this company and you can participate by going to then specifying the "American Sand Association" in the "Who do you Goodsearch for?" box.

This site will pay the ASA once a year for the searches that have been done with the "American Sand Association" as the designated cause. We receive one cent for each search. To see how much we have earned to date, go to Please try it.

This is another way to help support the ASA in our fight to keep our riding areas open. It costs you nothing and is powered by Yahoo. The performance is on par with comparable search engines.
